Can occupancy sensors be wired in parallel?

Senior Member. I agree with both, but you may still require multiple sensors, and yes they are fine in parallel. You should be able to find how they are wired in the device’s instructions.

Can you wire two motion sensors to the same light?

A light can be controlled with more than one motion sensor.

How do you wire a Lutron 3-Way occupancy switch?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: On my three-way circuit this is the power side we're going to start off here first. And then on the switch. Here we have these four wires. We have the neutral. The black and blue for the travelers.

How do you set a Lutron occupancy sensor?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: So all we have to do to set this to whatever mode we want you just simply push and hold on this button right here and uh we're gonna wait and in about five seconds it's gonna start blinking.

Can you have 2 PIR sensors to 1 light?

OK then – yes you can have two PIR’s to operate one light.

What is the difference between a motion sensor and an occupancy sensor?

The Occupancy sensor detects presence of people or animals in the target monitored area. The motion sensor responds to moving objects only. The difference between them is occupancy sensor produce signals whenever an object is stationary or not while motion sensor is sensitive to only moving objects.

How do you connect two motion sensors together?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: Power from the black line into the motion detector. It's sensing that there's motion the light turns on if however you're slaving them together like I am so that you can have one master.

How do you wire multiple PIR sensors?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: We take the live supply to the first PIR. And again this is just simply connected a class just. Like so and again this one here B's. Now just in inter connect as well. So it's really quite. Simple.

How do you connect two sensors in series?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: Right now other output is low at zero voltage. This will make a short circuit between outputs and damage sensors. We can prevent short circuit using two diode connected in output lines of the sensors.

How do I reset my Lutron occupancy sensor?

Step 1: Quickly triple tap and hold the Test or Light button on the Sensor. DO NOT release after third tap. Step 2: Keep the button pressed after the third tap for a few seconds until the dome LED begins to flash slowly (approximately once per second). The Sensor has now been returned to Factory Default Settings.

How do you adjust the occupancy sensor on a light switch?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: In vacancy mode you have to push the button to turn the load on to adjust the range turn the knob from the center default position of 65%.

How do you turn off occupancy sensor light switch?

The only way to turn off the override function is to turn the switch off and wait for 30 seconds to 1 minute before you turn it on again. This should reset the sensor so that it works on motion detection again.

Can you link 2 PIR lights together?

Yes it’s possible. You will need a 4 core between the 2 units.

Can you wire PIR sensors in series?

Fortunately, since PIR sensors have NC and COM contacts, it is possible to connect any number of them together in series to generate a single cumulative output signal which will be high (signal voltage) when motion is not being detected and low when motion IS detected – i.e. the cumulative signal will act just like the

Can you put 2 motion sensor on a three way switch?

When using in a 3-way application use one sensor and one standard 3-way switch. Cannot be used with another sensor, or in a 4-way application. WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS: If you are not sure about any part of these instructions, consult an electrician.

How do you install a 3-way occupancy sensor switch?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: Then use this as a ground wire next these two will be your travelers for your three-way wires. Put your red with the blue and then black with black and this last wire is their switch leg. Or.

How do you install a 3-way Lutron switch?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: And unscrew the old switch if you already had one if you didn't then you can just go ahead and install this one. This is very easy to install.

Can you put a motion sensor on a 4 way switch?

You cannot replace a 4-way switch with the sensor you have. The sensor you are using can either function as a 2-way or 3-way switch, it does not function as a 4-way switch. This is what a typical 4-way circuit looks like.

Can you put a motion sensor on a two way switch?

Yes, you can, under code, but you will also need to have ‘real’ switches also installed. As far as the second part write on a bit of paper, in marker, and stuff it in the the motion sensor junction box.

What is the red wire for on a motion detector light?

The red wire must go to the switch leg (the wire actually powering the light fixture) for the switch to operate properly. It won’t destroy the switch if wired backward, but it won’t work right, either.
